This really is a ‘5 star’ property, for their 24/7 human presence at the desk (adds greatly to security and problem-solving for the newbie tourist), superb built-in hot cold breakfast, and room spaciousness and comfort. They’re also less than 1 block away from a (orange-) hop-on hop-off bus stop, so easy to get around if you’re planning on using it for transit.

Great location, within easy walking distance of the Grassmarket and the Royal Mile. A quick taxi ride from Waverley. Our room was large, comfortable bed and good pillows. Plenty of hot water and a decent shower. We didn’t get daily room service but that seems to be the norm these days but the house staff were always around to provide any extras we might need. The front of house staff were friendly and knowledgeable about the area. Amy in particular was a fabulous resource for restaurant recommendations and always a cheery “ hello” when she saw us. We had breakfast once at the hotel, it was abundant, a buffet plus a cooked breakfast, cooked bfast wasn’t the best but the buffet was adequate, maybe having a choice of one or the other might be a good idea. We would definitely recommend this hotel as a well priced, hotel in a easy accessible part of the city

The staff at Leonardo Edinburgh were all really lovely. However, I did find somethings a bit frustrating about our stay. Of course, part of it is budget - you get what you paid for...but then somethings are just not up to par. Our hotel room was pretty small and cramped. The shower curtain wasn't very nice and kept clinging onto you as you bathed and were on horrible metal rings which screeched when you open/closed the shower curtain on the rail. We also had a broken hair dryer in our room which was overdue a test by about a year. The breakfast was nice, despite COVID-19 procedures, however I do wish they were a bit more mindful of what guests actually wanted or asking if we would want oatmeal/pastries, juice etc. The bags could lead to a lot of waste if the guest didn't want parts of the breakfast goodie bag. Lastly, again, not the fault of the hotel, but this property is about a block away from 3 strip clubs which we frequently passed by coming back. Something I wish I knew about this place as the men that would loiter outside these venues made me feel pretty uncomfortable late at night walking back.
